WAEC Releases 2023 BECE Results for School and Private Candidates

The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has announced the release of the provisional results of candidates who sat for the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) for both School and Private Candidates in 2023. The results were released on Wednesday, November 9, 2023, on the WAEC website and through the Metropolitan/Municipal/District Directors of Education.

According to a press release by WAEC, a total of 600,900 candidates, comprising 300,404 males and 300,496 females from 18,993 participating schools entered for the school examination. The examination was conducted at 2,137 centres across the country. Out of the total number, 3,366 candidates were absent.

The BECE for Private Candidates recorded a total entry figure of 1,839 candidates. This was made up of 942 males and 897 females. Fifteen centres, mostly in the regional capitals, were used for the conduct of the examination. Out of the total number of candidates who entered for the examination, 61 were absent.

The press release also stated that the Council had completed investigations into several cases of irregularity detected during the conduct and marking of the scripts. As a result, the 34th Meeting of the Final Awards and Examiners’ Appointment Committee for BECE, held on Monday, 6th November, 2023 approved the cancellation of subject results, entire results, or withholding of results of some candidates for various offences.

The Council cautioned all stakeholders to be wary of fraudsters who promise to upgrade results for a fee. Candidates are to note that WAEC results are secured and can only be accessed by candidates themselves on the Council’s website.

The Council also advised candidates who are not satisfied with their results to apply for remarking within 21 days after the release of the results. Candidates who wish to apply for remarking are required to pay a non-refundable fee of GH₵ 50.00 per subject.

The Council expressed its appreciation to all stakeholders, especially the Ministry of Education, Ghana Education Service, Supervisors, Invigilators, the Ghana Police Service, Examiners and all who in various ways helped in the successful conduct and release of the results.

The BECE is a national examination that is taken by students who complete their basic education, usually after nine years of schooling. It is used for selection of candidates for senior high schools and technical institutes. It is also a prerequisite for candidates who wish to pursue further education or training.

The BECE results release date was initially scheduled for January 25, 2023, but it was changed to November 9, 2023, by WAEC. The reason for the change was not disclosed by the Council.

We congratulate all the candidates who passed the BECE and wish them all the best in their future endeavours. We also encourage those who did not perform well to not give up, but to work harder and prepare for the next examination.
